Tried it at Oakshire Brewing! Poured from tap into a pint glass. According to the brewmaster there is one shot of espresso per pint. Aroma was full of coffee and malty subtleties. The pour and appearance was dark and lent to the richness to come. This brew is creamy, sweet, and has a wonderful hop middle that is not to be messed with. This brew is a perfect marriage of coffee and beer aka Oregon greatness!

Served from the bottle into a mason jar mug at the Cornbread Cafe in Eugene

A- Poured a very dark brown (looks black, you can see some brown hues on the edge of the glass though), big frothy and dark mocha head that left lots of chunky and droppy lace

S- Huge chocolate covered espresso bean aroma. Big, bold, dark roasted coffee aroma and nice chocolate sweetness. Amazing aroma, very aromatic

T- Big chocolate covered espresso bean flavor. The coffee flavor is strong, bold, and dark (just how I like my coffee). Some really nice sweet chocolate notes in addition to the big roasty coffee notes. Mineral presence in the taste and some sweet caramel notes. Pretty assertive coffee bitterness too.

M- Medium body, prickly carbonation, finishes semi-dry, a little lighter stout mouthfeel

O- What an amazing coffee forward stout. Definitely looking forward to having this readily available to me here.

Comes out of the tap a warm, opaque sable just a hair above black with a very fine-bubbled and persistent tan head. Roast coffee aroma has a hint of semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor is like a top-of-the-line mocha - quality coffee and chocolate with nutty, smoky and molasses hints. Texture is velvety smooth and nicely fizzy.

Bomber courtesy of Elendinn. Thanks man!

A- Beautiful black color with 3+ fingers of tan head. Produces a neat Guinness-style cascading effect, and the head hangs around for a while with good lacing. Really impressive looking.

S- Deep. bitter coffee aroma with a little chocolate and a little roasted malt.

T- Exceptional. Huge coffee flavor with nice roasty chocolate characters and a nice bitter note. Incredible.

M- Very nice. Creamy and smooth.

D- Pretty high. Low ABV and smooth flavors make this an easy drinker.

Wow, I was blown away. I had no real expectations, as I'd never even heard of the brewery, but this is an incredible coffee stout for everyday drinking. Highly recommended.

On tap at Good Times. Extremely heavy espresso taste and a dark as sin black pour with a solid head. Very refreshing and relaxing, it makes me want to take a nap. (But in a good way!) At this point this brew is probably what I have most often on tap at my favorite bar, hopefully more people will learn about this one soon.

Sampled this at Savor 2010. Poured black with a beige head, modest retention, and good lacing. HUGE roasted coffee bean nose, with some bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder hints as well. Copious amounts of flavor in the taste, with roasted malt and coffee dominating, and then mixing with some chocolate midpalate, and finishing on a pronounced dry coffee note. Smooth and on the thicker side, with very little carbonation. This is a great example of a coffee stout.

This beer is incredible. It pours out a deep black color with brown edges and a gnarly brown thick head. The aroma is heavily of chocolate and darkly roasted, thick coffee...awesome! The taste follows the aroma. This beer has so much flavor for only being 5.8%abv! It has a medium body and very rich flavors. I have yet to have a bad beer from this brewery...every beer they make is awesome and this is no exception! Well done!
